This comprehensive school social work text discusses major issues confronting education as well as practice directions for the design, delivery, and evaluation of school social work services.  

The Sixth Edition features a broader ecological perspective, with more attention to the effects of federal reforms, poverty, multiculturalism, and prevention efforts. It offers information on recent legislation and litigation, servicing disabled pupils, dealing with violence in the schools, and counseling gay and lesbian youth. This edition also includes more case material and examples to illustrate the concepts being discussed.
